Editorial Reviews


"[This] work is at its most compelling when it touches on the interaction of gender and religion with other social differences such as race ... Trzebiatowska and Bruce's book is accessible and a timely resource." --Theology

"The book is, in sum, a stimulating stab at drawing up a map of the parts of the literature that the authors find interesting. It is a light, quick read, which is refreshingly well written and well edited." -- Journal of Contemporary Religion

"In sum, the book likely will find its strongest readership within European contexts where secularization theory is still regarded as a primary explanation for the contemporary absence of explicitly religious, especially Christian, participation,and practice. The summary points found in the conclusion are worthy of consideration... Finally, the value of the authors' causal response to the title question of the book embedded in the point on lagged secularization depends ultimately on an interpretation of the secularization thesis from their vantage point." --Sociology of Religion
